I removed the air dam again! That thing looks so goofy, it did give me a 1 mpg gain on my Vegas trip tho I also conditioned the exterior plastic trim. It all looks dark glossy black again!

Jaashua, I had to cut back some of the plastic cubby, so I used some of the scrap plastic to put the switch on. It is actually a 3 sided piece that is held on with plastic rivets and epoxy on the side. It still needs some cleaning up, but it looks pretty good.

I'm pretty sure removing "the air dam" that your referring to actually decreases MPG, it is there for aerodynamics/mpg.

He meant he put it back on for his Vegas trip, gained the 1MPG then took it back off when he got home.

I got a long piece of angle bracket and trimmed quite a bit off of it to look similar to the Steel Armadillo CB antenna mount (which I already have on the driver's side). I will put this one on the passenger side to be used as a mount for a flag when at off-road parks. Took a little time with the grinder and then plasti-dipping it. I can take some pics when the plasti-dip it's dried and I mount it.

Somehow my Hellas randomly turned themselves on last night (even though the switches were in the off position) and drained my battery. Spent an hour this morning getting it jumped and recharging it.

Cleaned the Maf sensor and sprayed the body rust with treatment spray.

Absolutely no idea...I've been trying to think what could have possibly caused it. Maybe a bad relay?

Finally a nice day here, so I decided to repair the seeping transmission cooler hoses. Stopped at NAPA and picked up 2 feet of 3/8 trany hose and some clamps for $10. Cut the steel lines on the transmission side and removed the crimped collars on the cooler side so I could slip the new hoses on those knurled factory ends. About an hour and a half later I was done and no more leaks
Its nice when a job goes like you want it to.

got my Rustys dif guard in the mail today and put it on after work. Its anwesome gaurd for $60, really nice quality. The only bad thing I would say is the 5 allen bolts they supply you with, i didn't like them at all. I made a run to the hardware store and matched up the factory ones with some a bit longer, worked out perfect.

where'd you get the supports from and how much, if you don't mind me asking. Mine is terrible in the winter, but ok in the summer. Winter's the only time I really care though haha

Got an oil change today.

I've got a question for you peeps. Everytime I've went in for an oil change and tell them it's a 4.7L, they tell me that it need 5.7L and even marked on the engine in chalk that it's 5.7L, even though it's a 4.7.

Anyone know what that's about?
